“Later on, things will be ok” is a philosophy that doesn’t work- not in real life as I’ve learnt and paid in full for, and certainly not in “adjusting” gaps in quarter on quarter revenue numbers to show a fictitious cash balance of Rs, 5040 cr.
Unscrupulous goons.

Hi,Austy-well,that's what I meant it to be-a bit of a bad pun..but seriously,I felt a bit depressed reading about it-hope this was just a solitary case and no more skeletons forthcoming from our corporate world.

I'll tell you about ficticious balances, just hired another attorney for putting the thumbscrews down on he who must not be named and had to fill out my own financial declaration...

My output is nearly double my income. How scary is that? I think the dead beat dads are the goons... Wonder how long I can maintain this fantasy...

austere said...

But you must, babyisland, for the three little ones; for the eldest as much as the youngest who will go to Stanford one day; such a high forehead!

quin browne said...

baby... revenge is a dish best served cold.

i did the bulk of my legal things myself, with the joy of an attorney who allowed it, and only charged me for court time.

eventually... all is done, the children settled.. and you will have peace.
